Three essays and biographies of all the exhibiting artists build a compelling record of the 2022 Chartwell Show, Walls to Live Beside, Rooms to Own. The introductory essay by Natasha Conland outlines the curatorial approach and socio-cultural background that informed the exhibition’s development and argues for the role that experiences and ideas of ‘home’ have played in art making from the 1970s to now. Two supplementary essays by Michael Ned Holte and Amiria Taumata focus, respectively, on commissioned artworks by Fiona Connor and Tim Wagg; a plate section reproduces a core sample of the artworks in the exhibition; while archival images illustrate material that informed Connor’s sculpture, Walls #1–6 and #8, (featuring Rob Gardiner), 2022.
